Everything You Could Ever Want to Know on Tiles in Windows Store Apps
In this session, we will deep-dive into tiles in Windows Store apps for Windows 8. We will cover everything from how to set the default tile to badges to secondary tiles. We will discuss wide tiles and when it is appropriate to use them. We will investigate live tiles and the 4 notification delivery mechanisms for them (including pushing from a cloud). We will demonstrate the code and use of tiles in a Yelp application. You will walk away with a solid understanding of tiles in Windows 8.
